I am a pre-doctoral student at Max Planck School of Cognition and am pursuing my Masters from Berlin School of Mind and Brain. I like to use computational modelling, machine learning and reinforcement learning to understand human cognitive phenomena such as decision making, emotion, curiosity and creativity. I graduated from IIIT Delhi with a B. Tech. (Hons.) in Computer Science & Engineering and a minor area in Computational Biology in July 2020.

At present, I am doing my Masters thesis project at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in the department of Computational Neuroscience led by Dr. Peter Dayan. With Dr. Aenne Brielmann and in collaboration with the CPI lab, I am working on measuring and modelling people's curiosity and creativity in visual pixel grid patterns.

Apart from my research interests, I have learnt Hindustani Classical music for over 10 years and love singing. I also hold National scholarship for Kuchipudi dance. I enjoy watching tennis (huge Djokovic supporter) and used to actively participate in athletics in my school days! Recently, I have had fun trying out some calligraphy and voice acting.
